Watch: Ole’s childlike joy at Marcus Rashford’s goal makes us smile
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a man with a certain Peter Pan quality.
Whether he is blessed with good genes, or just moisturises well, the Norweigan manager has certainly aged gracefully.
This observation adds an extra dimension to Solskjaer’s celebration of Marcus Rashford’s second goal against RB Leipzig last night.
Admittedly, the goal was spectacular – Rashford took the ball forward and rifled it home, knocking £10million off the price tag of United target Dayo Upamencano in the process.
However, the moment that made us smile most was his manager’s celebration. Appearing in the right-hand corner of the screen like a confused grandparent during a Zoom call, Solskjaer punched the air with zest and vigorously applauded his player’s moment of inspiration.
There seemed a real catharsis in his celebration as if the weight of a mediocre start to the season had begun to be lifted.
Great goal, great celebration. More please, gentleman.
